Active Trowbridge are pleased to be hosting the Active Festival for its 11th year and would like to invite you to attend. The Active Festival 2022 will be taking place on the 9th July 2022 between 11am and 4pm.

The festival offers the opportunity to showcase not only your sport, but your club or business will have the chance to attract new members or clients. There is no cost to attend, if you provide a free activity based around your sport or service for attendees to try. The festival over the years has regularly attracted large crowds of almost 10,000 people and is a fantastic opportunity for your club or business to engage with the local community and increase membership.

If you are a trader looking to sell products and are unable to provide a free activity, we charge £20 per pitch: this needs to be paid in advance either by card or cheque (made payable to Trowbridge Town Council): if you prefer to pay by bank transfer, BACS details are available on request (please ensure you use Active Festival as a reference).

All attendees must be set up on site by 9am for a health and safety inspection, and off site by 6pm.

Pitches cannot be confirmed until all paperwork is received and signed off by the Trowbridge Town Council Events Officer, and if you are a trader, until the pitch payment has been made: this paperwork consists of a Booking Form (downloadable here), and a Risk Assessment for your activity and temporary structures; please also note that any generators used must be appropriately guarded behind barriers for health and safety purposes. A copy of your public liability insurance must also be provided. Please note that due to occurrences in previous years, non-attendance will be charged at a rate of £25 to cover the costs of amendments to marketing and administration.

Risk assessments must cover both the activity provided and any temporary structures used, such as a gazebo – an example of the required risk assessment is attached for your convenience.

We do hope you will consider attending and if you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
